American, 1819–1904
Follow

Martin Johnson Heade painted both still lifes and landscapes, paying exquisite attention to detail and bringing a scientific naturalism to all of his works. Though he was friendly and associated with the Hudson River School painters, Heade eschewed grandeur, focusing instead on atmospheric effects, light, and the humble, intimate details of a scene. A peripatetic artist, he moved around the U.S. and traveled to Brazil, Nicaragua, Colombia, Panama, and Jamaica, where he created jewel-like paintings of tropical flowers and birds.
